Bonus Quote of the Day
"Although it is true that Haiti was just, like, five minutes ago a victim of a random earthquake that killed tens of thousands of people, I’m going to skip right past the fake mourning period and point out that Haitians are a bunch of lazy niggers who can’t keep their dongs in their pants and probably wouldn’t be pancaked under fifty tons of rubble if they had spent a little more time over the years listening to the clarion call of white progress, and learning to use a freaking T-square, instead of singing and dancing and dabbling in not-entirely-Christian religions and making babies all the fucking time. I know I’m supposed to respect other cultures and keep my mouth shut about this stuff, but my penis is only four and a third inches long when fully engorged and so I’m kind of at the end of my patience just generally, especially when it comes to 'progress-resistant' cultures."
-- Matt Taibbi "translating" David Brooks's comically elitist column on the Haitian earthquake aftermath and what it tells us about Haiti in general
And people say I gleefully blast gaping holes in propriety. That ticking sound you hear is both the bomb Taibbi just armed and the countdown to David Brooks demanding a formal apology.
